Aletha R. Davis
DREAMS do come true … Ms. Aletha R Davis 25 years ago in the basement office vowed one day she would own a human service business with the sole purpose of creating change within the system. Over the years she has held a variety of human service jobs such as corrections, hospice, acute case management & federal funded projects. Along the way & never letting her dreams die; she named her company in 2011.
She found herself providing services to individuals and their families outside of her typical work hours. Realizing at the end of every long day, good, bad, or challenging situations, if you put Love FIRST everything works out. Six years of working for others while nurturing her Love 1st dream part-time; finally, with divine intervention came to the opportunity to purchase the AC Moody House. She was able to secure a place for Love 1st, LLC to call home. Her experience with human service work, love for the special needs population and determination to provide outstanding upscale services creates excitement about the future of Love 1st, LLC. We are a DD/ID Wavier group home & Medicare & Medicaid transportation services.
The future vision is adding other services such as day placement inthe least restrictive environment while giving our individuals the dignity & respect along the way. Our ultimate goal is to empower our individuals to always Live, Learn & Grow.

Willie A. Cornelius
Buffalo’s Concern for Youth—was founded as a direct result of a vision, founder and Chief Executive Officer Willie Cornelius conceived. Mr. Cornelius’ work with K.I.S. Sports, children-at-risk, and in addition to students with learning difficulties. BC4Y provides a rich and applicable atmosphere for his work, as founder and leader of Buffalo’s Concern for Youth (formerly KIS Sports) and its services, he acknowledges this exposure led him professionally to establish this innovative agency.
BC4Y uses a relaxed approach to institute learning skills from which clients are encouraged to “learn in leisure”. Learning from and giving to one another. BC4Y throughout Salisbury, NC and Rowan County are caring for, and empowering the underserved, overly stressed, and overwhelmed populous issues. We include informational/hands-on training, to enhance how our staff may best work with the students/families they serve.
Mr. Cornelius acknowledges that during his career in both the private and public sectors, adding non-profit organizations, where he witnessed a need, not filled by conventional organizations. Afterwards, his vision came into fruition.
His experience and placement in this arena was no accident. However, “Purpose Driven.” He proclaims a great belief in how God influenced his mainstream thinking concerning community activism, mental health, and education that bound him throughout his early career.
We pray that you will join us as we set out on this journey toward finding strength, though hope and learning.
